BREAKING: Buhari, IG Idris meet inside Aso Rock

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday, July 24, met behind closed doors with the inspector-general of police, Ibrahim Idris, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The Punch reported that the agenda of the meeting was not made public.

Legit.ng gathered that the meeting was however held a few hours after news broke that security operatives laid a siege on the residences of the president of the Senate, Bukola Saraki and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu.

It also came a day after the police high command again invited Saraki for questioning over the recent Offa robbery.

The police had asked Saraki to report on Tuesday, July 24, at 8am but he had not complied with the directive as of the time the police boss was meeting Buhari.

His failure to honour the invitation forced the police to issue a statement threatening to use all legal means to get him.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that President Buhari expressed his total commitment to the values of democracy, freedom of choice as well as total willingness to work with all members of the National Assembly, irrespective of their political party, for the benefit of the nation.

The president’s statement was in response to the mass defection of some All Progressives Congress (APC) lawmakers to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday, July 24.

President Buhari in his reaction noted that none of the defecting federal lawmakers had any specific grievances against him or the government he leads; neither did he harbour anything against any of them.
